Men are traditionally more proud and stubborn compared to women when it comes to seeking help. Often, situations have to be at their worst before a man will seek help. It is a common misleading belief that admitting to needing help is a sign of weakness or being “soft”.
At Urzi Psychology, I have heard time and time again that my male clients find it easier to speak to a man, as it is less embarrassing and it’s easy to relate. As a man myself, I understand the difficulty one may encounter in opening up about sensitive topics. My aim is to show all men that you can still be a man, while acknowledging feelings and emotions. Being a man doesn’t mean having to suffer in silence.
I have discovered that the ultimate sign of strength and courage is knowing when to ask for help. As one man to another man, I am here to help.
